** In both games, [[AIIsACrapshoot SHODAN's]] voice. Not just her ElectronicSpeechImpediment, but the ambience behind it is a cacophany of random syllables and what sounds like SHODAN ''screaming'' the entire time, each message punctuated by a blast of low, distorted static. And the second game implies she sounds like this on purpose.

* ''VideoGame/BioShock2'': The scream of the Big Sisters. They're scripted to only attack once the player has saved/harvested enough Little Sisters, but the first time it happens, it's completely out of nowhere.
